Never a Dull Flight

  |   Uncategorized   |   1 Comment

I’m now in the British Airways lounge at London Heathrow after two flights that took me from Livingstone to Johannesburg and now to London. I’ve just got one more flight before I’m home to San Francisco, and I’m looking forward to resting up after a busy few weeks!

Normally I manage to sleep through all my flights, but I was awake for the first half of my trip from Johannesburg to London, so I managed to watch the four available episodes of the second season on Downton Abbey, which brought a nice dose of British scandal and drama to my flight. 🙂

As I was waiting to use the restroom on the flight, an adorable old British woman started up a conversation with me that started with an observation about the person who was using the restroom at the time: “Whizzing sure seems to take a long time when you’re waiting!” Haha…it was quite the shocking moment for me, and the absurdity of it keeps making me think that I must have misheard her. Nonetheless, it was a priceless moment and exactly the kind of surprising humor that lightens up a 12-hour flight!

So I’m resting up for a few hours before I take my final flight, and I’m looking forward to seeing what characters I meet on this one. Thanks again for following our journey, and we’re excited to share more about our work and travel in the coming months!
